easy chocolate cake

My husband's birthday was a few weeks ago and of course, he asked me to make him his favourite cake (i.e. chocolate cake). He absolutely adores this cake, but I don't think he realizes how fast and easy it is to make! It actually calls for chocolate cake mix! But you would never know that it's not completely from scratch because it's so yummy!

  • Prep Time
  • 12Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup chocolate mint liqueur
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 325F.

2. Mix all ingredients together. Pour into greased bundt pan.

3. Bake for 50-60 minutes.

For the icing, I used a combination of icing sugar, cocoa, a dash of mint extract and some water/orange juice. Unfortunately, though, I didn't pay attention to exact amounts.

A tip for icing cakes: I always place 4 pieces of parchment paper under the cake (as in the above picture) so that the icing drips onto the parchment and not the plate that I'm serving it on. When the icing has hardened, I remove the parchment and have a beautifully iced cake with no residue on the plate!
